    The first presidents where the founders and not born here, Martin Van Buren is the correct answer.

    George Washington was born in Colonial Virginia.

    But he couldn't be an american citizen as the country had not been formed yet.
    You said that they were not born here. They were.
    maybe the writer meant "who was the first president born in the United States of America"
    Ms Sinclair

    Why did you TD my answer? I was talking to Randy. That's an abuse of this website. Turnabout is fair play idiot!
    George Washington. Contrary to what some people believe, you have to be born here to become president. It's the law.
    gary

    because the law included everyone at the time the Constitution was adopted.
    No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    your statement was too broad.
    Ms Sinclair

    That still doesn't explain why you gave me a thumbs down. TDs are usually reserved for those who make rude, obscene, or obnoxious comments to other people here. If you simply disagreed with me you could have stated the case without doing that.
